After 3 stents, an unrelated surgery due to multiple bladder infections last year, I became anemic. I took iron for a couple of months and my hemoglobin improved and I felt better and stopped the iron. A few months later I started feeling tired again, had another blood test and my iron was still low, but not anemic. I started the supplements again and am feeling better.
